Outcomes Magazine Archives
The theme of this edition of Outcomes is “Perspectives.” It offers perspectives on Christian leadership past, present and future. You will hear from some of CLA’s pioneers. You’ll benefit from time-tested reflections on Christian leadership. And you will gain insight from dedicated leaders on the front lines of love and good deeds (Heb. 10:23-24) around our world today.
This edition of Outcomes focuses on the theme of “stewardship.” Like the Old Testament prophet Daniel, we find ourselves leading amid an increasingly hostile culture. We can learn from the wisdom, integrity and grace with which Daniel served and excelled within Babylonian culture. Daniel was a faithful steward because of his deep commitment to God. His course was set. He didn’t waver as the pressure to compromise his faith intensified. Let us likewise be faithful stewards in the service of the King of Kings.
In these times of societal change and cultural drift, we as Christian leaders must be rooted deeply in Christ and tethered firmly to the unchanging truths of God’s Word. Pursuing excellence is the theme of this CLA Founders Council edition, and we hope the insights shared here will inspire you.
The looming leadership gap in Christian nonprofits, and the need to equip future leaders to fill these roles, is why this edition of Outcomes magazine has “succession” as its theme. We offer insight from leaders who have navigated leadership succession well, and who today see thriving organizations as a result.
In this edition of Outcomes, we explore what it means to lead in these times. Opposition to those who follow Christ is growing. Seismic cultural shifts mark our times. However, our God is more powerful than cultural trends. He has fully equipped us to live out his grace and truth as we seek to transform the world for Christ.
